Lathrobium (Madecalobrathium) keiseri Scheerpeltz, 1961: 251  (type locality: Madagascar, Soanierana-Ivongo). Pseudolathra keiseri: Janák, 2014: 475  .

Pseudolathra (Madecalobrathium) keiseri: Lecoq, 2017: 207  .

Material studied. 6 specimens (4♂♂, 2♀♀): Réunion, St. Paul – Grand Étang , 29.12.1991 – 1.1.1992, J. Janák lgt. (cJan)  .

Remarks. Originally described from Madagascar, this is the only macropterous Pseudolathra  known from Réunion so far. Male sternite VII ( Fig. 4View FIGURES 1–16) is normally pubescent, lacking modified setae, similar to P. hamoni  but with sparser pubescence particularly in the middle of posterior margin. The excision of the posterior margin of male sternite VIII ( Fig. 20View FIGURES 17–20) is relatively deeper than in P. hamoni  . The aedeagus ( Figs 1–3View FIGURES 1–16) is characterised by two long processes attached to an asymmetrical apical portion of the ventral process of the aedeagus, a unique feature among Madagascan Pseudolathra  . Habitus photos of this species were published by Janák (2014).
